The standard slide is stainless steel, with “diamond-like carbon coating” available as an option. Disassembling the pistol for cleaning does not require pulling the trigger, as Mossberg’s “safe takedown system” allows the striker assembly to be removed before removing the slide.
Several MC1sc offerings are available, including ones with a cross-bolt safety. Single-stack magazines with 6-round and 7-round capacities are available; both are made with clear polymer and have an orange floor plate. Additionally, the MC1sc will accept Glock 43 magazines. The magazine release is reversible.
